The rooms have tinted glass but these can be opened. Provided in the rooms are TV’s which have up to date flight arrival information on teletext. The hotel comes equipped with an outdoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and restaurant
Location: *** Close to the terminal and a free shuttle bus make this hotel well worth considering.
Spotting: *** If you can reserve one of the above rooms then you shouldn’t miss much traffic. Alternatively, there is a roof terrace provided at the airport.
Photos: * No reports provided but the tinted glass could make photos awkward.
Value: *** Prices vary quite considerably depending on what offers are available at the time. A typical price is between £40 and £80.
Book:   This hotel can be booked through the Mercure website or through the following link Mercure Airport Hotel Berlin Tegel which often produces a better rate.

    Staff are quite unhelpful and aren’t willing to block out airport view rooms – we were allocated room 502 (after a heated email and contact with British Airways Holidays) and it had a partial/blocked view of the planes. The shuttle bus was fantastic and it made getting to the viewing terrace much easier than the 10/15 walk…
    6th floor rooms are smoking rooms but in theory would provide much better views.

    Breakfast staff are super and are always happy to help you with any food related questions. Restaurant staff are nice as well.

    The reception staff were VERY difficult when asking for a kettle in the room as they don’t provide you with tea and coffee making facilities.

    Stay date: October 25th – October 29th 2015.
